We’re now mid-way through our pepper week as part of Eat Them to Defeat Them.
Did you know – peppers have so much vitamin goodness?
They are so good for you; we’ve created a little ditty about the colourful pepper!
Peppers change colour at different stages
From a dark green to a yellow that’s bright
With the ripest ones being orange or red
Covering all the shades of the traffic light!
People talk about oranges being high in Vitamin C
But they have nothing on peppers you’ll find
They have three times the Vitamin goodness
Leaving oranges and others far, far behind
Peppers come from flowering plants
And they have seeds to boot
So make sure you keep it under your hat
That peppers are technically a fruit!
